Two new superyachts under construction at Perini Navi in Italy are to be equipped with integrated bridge systems by the Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC). The yachts are the 56m aluminium ketch Melek (launched last July at Viareggio) and the first 55m steel-hulled motoryacht in the new Vitruvius Explorer series built at La Spezia. Both are due for delivery in 2011.

The orders for the integrated bridge systems were awarded to Northrop Grumman’s Sperry Marine business unit through Telemar Yachting
